Oh Kansas, sweet Kansas
What made you decide to disappear?
I left to go find you
Id roam alone for years.

I should have know that you were in
That old city filled with wind
I guess its true what they say sometimes
A good old boy just cant win.

Oh Kansas, sweet Kansas
Do you sleep alone tonight?
Ill be on my way to where you lay
Ill take this bloodshot flight

And I havent slept a wink since you left
I hope you know its true
Im an hour behind and ive made up my mind
Done losing time trying not to lose you

She said I just cant win, sometimes its not fair
When I call for help no ones ever there
And this ruby red blood that I call my own
Sometimes is the only thing that feels like home

Elizabeth, she looked at me
With her blue eyes heavy
It was a half past three
I put my pillow over the note I wrote
To hide my scribbled words and the lumps in my throat
I screamed Kansas, sweet Kansas
Wont you say youll stay til the sun?
She said sorry love, try and close you eyes
Id hate for you again to watch me run.
